Pittsburgh Penguins defensemen Kris Letang and John Ludvig and forward Matt Nieto are recovering from recent surgeries, the team announced Wednesday.

Letang, 37, faces an eight-week recovery timetable following an operation last Friday to repair a fractured finger on his left hand.

The two-time All-Star and two-time Stanley Cup winner played all 82 games in his 18th season with Pittsburgh in 2023-24 and recorded 51 points (10 goals, 41 assists).

Ludvig, 23, had surgery to repair the extensor tendon in his left wrist on April 24 and has an expected recovery time of four to six months.

Ludvig made his NHL debut on Oct. 24, 2023 and finished his first season with three goals and two assists in 33 games.

Nieto, 31, will be sidelined for six to seven months following reconstructive MCL surgery on his left knee on May 2.

Nieto appeared in 22 games in his first season with the Penguins in 2023-24 and contributed one goal and three assists.
